Nigerian music reviews by the best music critics in the country

falz stores that touch review
Falz the badt guy had his single, Karashika buzzing for most of the year, carrying his momentum from 2014 well into 2015. Once word hit that he was releasing an album this year, everyone was curios to see just what Falz would have up his sleeves for his sophomore...
Adekunle Gold struck gold twice this year already with his singles, Sade, and Orente, and was looking to hit the trifecta before the end of 2015, and did just that with the new single, Pick Up. The first thing that struck me about this song is that it's lively from...
davido dodo
Davido has been buzzing all year around for all his different singles, and features and for good reason to. His soon to be released album, The Baddest, is the most anticipated of 2016. Once this tune, DODO, dropped yesterday, I gave it a little bit of time for the initial...
Seyi Shay is a very unique artist in the Nigerian music industry, and that has been a good thing most times, other times not so great. Before her hit single, Murda, last year, the name Seyi Shay was very well known but not many could say why they knew...
Lil Kesh has been arguably the highest rated rising star since the beginning of 2014, and for good reason. When you have one of the biggest hits in a year, and 2 other strong hits, you become very hard to ignore. In his new joint, Is It Because I Love...
When it comes to her genre of music in Nigeria, Simi sets herself apart from the rest, and she continues to prove her creativity and originality with every single she drops. From her EP last year, to her massive singles "Tiff" and "E No Go Funny" and now her...
ycee su mi
The first time we really got something of note from Ycee was his 2015 hit, Jagaban (the remix of which featured Olamide). Since then it's non stop dropping of joints; from singles to covers, Ycee has used the last 10 months very very well. So when we got word that his mixtape will...
reminisce album elhadj
The 'Kako Bi Chicken'crooner turned Alaga Ibile who then became Baba Hafusa took us on a trip to Mecca. His personal Mecca as you may call it, but it's worth the ride. Without a doubt, Reminisce has been one of the most consistent rappers we have at the moment....
saeon de be cypher
Saeon dropped the cypher version of her single De Be, and reminded everyone in Nigerian hip-hop how it should be done. Featuring an all star cast of A.T, Poe, Eva, Ozone, Tesh Carter and Ycee, this version of De Be is what any real hip-hop fan would love. The production...
phyno nnunu
Phyno dropped this new joint, Nnunu, a few days ago featuring StormRex, seemingly out of no where and pleasantly surprised a lot of fans. Phyno over the past year has become easily one of the top 5 rappers in Nigeria and it looks like he's not trying to fall off that...
falz simi chemistry
After all the excitement of a joint EP from two of the most talented acts in Nigeria, Simi & Falz, I decided to give this 7-track project a review. Chemistry got a lot of well deserved hype before its released, and was one of the most anticipated projects of...
kiss daniel new era
If you were underestimating what Kiss Daniel would put out in the form of an album, then you're not alone. Kiss Daniel (real name Daniel Anidugbe) probably surprised a lot of peeps with his new album, New Era. Now let's get into the specifics. The album kicks off with a...
timaya sanko remix with destra
It's review time, and right now we're jumping on Timaya's Sanko Remix which features Soca queen, Destra. With remixes it's always hit and miss. Some remixes end up being dope, and some are just unnecessary and wack. This one right here falls on the dope side of things. The song, Sanko...
Quite honestly I haven't paid much attention to Lady Donli, but while browsing through the music pages and listening to new songs this one instantly caught my attention. The first thing that struck me about the song was the easy going and soothing beat. Lady Donli's flow style is unique,...
Aside the fact that the new tune "Joromi," is relating on so many grounds, X3M Music act, Simi and AJE Film Works have simply granted us another perfect video which is brilliantly colorful, and with less cast involved. Simi tells a story that is common but with multiple occurrences. Either from gentlemen...
reminisce asalamalekun
Man! This joint is serious on a whole new level. First thoughts on the first listen of this new joint, Asalamelekun (Peace Be Onto You) by Reminisce. He really breaks in 2016 on a very high note (we'll ignore Angelina that dropped earlier). First thing that hits you on this joint is...
